By the way, I have the box here, too.
I only vaguelöy remember buying it when it was marketed down - now I'm glad I did, because with all of its contents, it still stands out.

Too bad I didn't buy the "Ultima Collection" that came out around that time. I better should have done it, but I think I remember I just didn't hve the money for it.
Well, actually there are two patches:

1) This one is supposedly done by one of the designers to fix many problems in the game: http://reconstruction.voyd.net/zips/u9ver119.zip

2) Here is the dialogue patch: http://reconstruction.voyd.net/zips/u9fanpatch160.zip

I'm betting it is English only, but not sure. Also, if you are going to use it, disable the speech function in the game, otherwise you'll have audio saying one thing and the subtitles saying something else!

I read a review that once said that the biggest problem with U9 was that the world, while beautifully done, just felt absolutely empty. I think that is spot on (maybe not the biggest problem, but certainly one of them). In U7, most of the towns were huge, crowded bustling mini-cities, that you could tell had grown from each incarnation to the next. In U9, they seemed spread out and practically vacant.
